【Uchimura Mitsuyoshi (Buster)】
Many audiences did not realize that I was playing Buster Moon in the previous movie, and I got many responses that “was that you, playing Buster?”. I was glad to hear that, because I tried my best to hide that I am playing the character. Since I got 5 years older, so I want to keep my youngness as much as possible, but sorry if my tone changed by removing a tooth. I want to remember how I played by watching the previous movie.
Recording session is very difficult and I know that the days of training will come soon. I felt the skills of the voice actors in the previous movie, and I think I will feel that again this time. I hope that I can steal their techniques.
【Sakamoto Maaya (Rojita)】
“Sing” is the movie that make you both laugh and cry, so I LOVE it. I was so happy to hear that Rojita will appear in the new movie again and I cannot wait for the recording. Rojita accomplished her goal in the previous movie by breaking her own shell and I look forward what kind of challenge she will try in the upcoming movie.
【Saitou Tsukasa (Gunter)】
I am honestly happy that I can play Gunter after 5 years. It is because I hoped to show this to my child one day, since “Sing” got so popular among the children and some children waved at me with Gunter’s stuffed toy when I performed skits for comedy. I played him before my daughter was born and she is now 3 and I see her watching and dancing the dance with Gunter over and over again.
I knew nothing on how I should act in the last movie, and it was new for me to both recording and singing. I was uncertain that if I am okay, after hearing the original voice actor Nick Kroll, but I enjoyed playing with all support provided by others around me. As the result, I could appear in Music Station as a “Sing” member. I never expected to appear in Music Station with Lady Gaga’s music when I became a comedian. Lol
How will the characters grow up and wave the story? Let’s wait and see where Gunter will take you to!
